Less then lethal force was also part of his training.

Sorry, but if I am in a scuffle with a criminal, and they went for a gun, I would act with deadly force before I end up being the dead one. I don't care about skin color one bit. Just because of the fact that the officer was white, and the criminal was black, this is suddenly a hate crime? Can we look at this logically before jumping to the conclusion that it was blatant racism? Would you be saying the same thing if it were a black officer?
Let's take a breath and recap. Wilson sees two young black men walking in the middle of the street. He pulls over and politely asks them to use the sidewalk. They refuse. He asks again, still polite. Brown tells Wilson — again, a uniformed police officer in a police car — "# what you have to say." Wilson stops his car, tries to get out, and Brown slams the car door on him and then begins punching him through the open window.
What happens next is the most unbelievable moment in the narrative. And so it's probably best that I just quote Wilson's account at length on it.
I was doing the, just scrambling, trying to get his arms out of my face and him from grabbing me and everything else. He turned to his...if he's at my vehicle, he turned to his left and handed the first subject. He said, "here, take these." He was holding a pack of — several packs of cigarillos which was just, what was stolen from the Market Store was several packs of cigarillos. He said, "here, hold these" and when he did that I grabbed his right arm trying just to control something at that point. Um, as I was holding it, and he came around, he came around with his arm extended, fist made, and went like that straight at my face with his...a full swing from his left hand.

I don't know about anyone else, but if your previous job was DISBANDED due to racism, it wouldn't look good on your resume and would only look 'perfect' for retarded racists.
